How was the Nonprofit Builder created?

The Nonprofit Builder's story started in 2017 with a simple yet clear mission.

The founder, Daniel D'Esposito, had 20 years of nonprofit experience in his backpack, and having learned the job the hard, slow and painful way, he wanted to make it easier and faster for future leaders to learn how to build effective organizations.

How could this be made simpler and more accessible?
From that question, the idea was born.
